Your sinuses are located in your cheekbones behind your nasal cavity, between your eyes in your forehead, and are comprised of eight hollow cavities. Sinusitis is a condition that causes inflammation in the tissues surrounding these hollow cavities and acute sinusitis is a condition where fluid blocks these tissues. Acute sinusitis is a common condition and often results in a bacterial infection.
When you have acute sinusitis you’re likely to have symptoms such as a headache, runny nose, and similar cold-like symptoms that may last for up to four weeks. People often turn to nasal sprays and decongestants to combat sinusitis, but your chiropractor may also provide relief.
Chiropractic Sinus Adjustment
Depending on the scope and origin of your sinus pain, the chiropractic adjustment may include your neck and/or back. If you have misaligned vertebrae in your spinal column it could be adding to your sinus issue, making it worse. Since chiropractors treat the underlying cause of your health problem and not just the symptoms, the treatment will vary slightly depending on your specific set of circumstances. It’s also important to remember that the nerves coming out of your spine can have an impact on your sinuses. Misalignments of the spine can cause nerve dysfunction and tissue dysfunction.
